Meet the Author

Ted Kooser
TED KOOSER’s poems have appeared in The New Yorker, Hudson Review, Antioch Review, Kenyon Review, Shenandoah and dozens of other literary journals. Kooser has won the Hugo Prize from Poetry Northwest, the Kunitz Prize from Columbia, and two National Endowment for the Arts fellowships. He has published eight full-length collections of poetry and a number of chapbooks and special editions. He lives on an acreage near the village of Garland, Nebraska.

Good To Know

Kooser revealed some interesting facts about himself in our interview:

"I wanted to be a writer from the time I was a young man, but realized that I'd have to make a living somehow. I tried high school teaching but was incapable of maintaining discipline in the classroom and the students ran right over me. In 1964, after being tossed out of graduate school because I was a completely undisciplined scholar, I went to work at an "entry level" job in a life insurance company and over twenty five years was gradually elevated to a vice presidency.

During those years I wrote every morning from 5:30 till about 7:00. I never saw myself as an insurance executive, but rather as a writer in need of a paying job."

"I love living in rural America, away from the noise and clamor of the city, and I am completely content to go all week without speaking to anyone but my wife and my dog. My wife, Kathleen Rutledge, is the editor of the Lincoln Journal Star, the daily newspaper in Lincoln, Nebraska, and she helps keep me up on the news. I rarely leave home unless I can't find a good excuse not to go.

I write and paint and do chores around the farm, and am immensely thankful for every new day."

    I bought this strictly by going on the critics reviews and got lucky!

    What a great little book with little poems. It is his style of writing that touches the heart. Knowing that he had cancer when he wrote it put a little different spin on it yet cancer was only mentioned a time or two and not in a heavy way at all. I gave this as gifts too.
